Give Me Shelter...

from Al Gore's monstrous head - I'm truly afraid of it. I've been out most of the day, but earlier a non-descript bunch of polite young lads graced the TV screen and as they sang "If I lay here / If I just lay here" and my son asked me who was singing and I answered with absolute certainty "The Fray". Of course it was the just as innocuous Snow Patrol. Is it too much to ask that million selling "rock" groups at least be distinguishable from one another?

I'm currently watching Keith Urban (I just heard him speak - he's not American?) and he's pretty good and I'm sure a hit with the ladies. But covering the Stones' "Gimme Shelter" was unnecesary and bringing out "special guest" Alicia Keys was double unnecessary.

Okay, I'm really glad I'm not the only one who had NO idea he was Australian.
